ME 219: The Magic of Materials and Manufacturing

ME219 is intended for students who anticipate imagining and creating new products and who are interested in how to make the leap from making one to making many. Through a combination of lectures, weekly factory field trips, and multimedia presentations the class will help students acquire foundational professional experience with materials and materiality, manufacturing processes, and the business systems inside factories. We hope to instill in students a deep and life-long love of materials and manufacturing in order to make great products and tell a good story about each one. This class assumes basic knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes which result from taking ENGR 50, ME203, or equivalent course or life experience.

ME 225: Scaling Your Vision

Scaling Your Vision is intended for design and engineering oriented students who anticipate or have an interest in launching products. Where the cousin of this class, ME219, is an overview of fabrication and factory systems, this course explores how to go from vision to reality, and from parts to products. We'll explore the systems that enable us to design and produce high-quality products, at scale, at reasonable prices, including quality systems, supply chains, and different ways of conveying intent to factories. Students will acquire a professional foundation in the business of manufacturing through readings, in-class discussion, and roughly one-a-week team projects.
